I don’t know about you, but this past week was a long week for me. I work in a university, and we have hundreds of new students arriving and getting ready to start classes. It’s hard to find time to eat sometimes, let alone write stories. Sometimes when you are busy and tired it is hard to even think creatively.
However, even when you are tired, stories are all around you, floating silently like dandelion seeds on breezes of inspiration. They just take a little watering. When you see something interesting, ask yourself why it’s that way. This can lead to other questions and soon the story is taking root.
This week’s prompt is a first line of a story. It’s short, so it’s up to you to ask the questions that will help the story bud and start to grow in your mind.
Story Prompt: August 22, 2022
Bread meant everything.
